George-ous Weekend

Good morning, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. 

I kicked off the weekend early on Friday by taking Knox to his yearly visit.  Poor little fellow hates shots, but he got a great check up.  For good behavior I took him to Three Dog Bakery for a little goody.   When Fred got off of work, we went out for burgers.  

Saturday, Fred went to a car show with our friend Mason while Knox and I snuggled and slept in.  I met them for lunch and then Fred and I ran some of our usual weekend errands.  We made it home to see Tennessee beat UConn.  :) Then we settled in for the night with some pizza and Ides of March.  The movie was really slow, but it was good.  I love George Clooney and Ryan Gosling!
On Sunday, we skipped church and headed out for a nice brunch.  We stopped by to see Fred's parents and then went to see The Descendants followed by dinner with my parents.  Yes, a little more George.  It was a great movie, but very sad and very real!  I see why it got all of the noms! 
Last night we had some terrible storms move through the area and now we've got sun!  That's the whacky Memphis weather!  Overall we had a great weekend! And I defintiely got my much needed George-fix. :) So, what did you do this weekend?

I'm not that into politics, but I really liked the Ides of March. I agree, it was a bit slow, but GC and RG are so yummy!! I just love Ryan's voice.

And I love that first quote. Wouldn't it be nice if weekends were five days and work was two? =)

I really liked Ides of March, I thought The Descendants was good, but I don't think it really matched all the hype.

I feel like there was wacky weather all over the country this weekend! yikes!
